Description [106] leaves. Engraved throughout, the images and calligraphic text set within elaborately decorated borders. Full red calf gilt. All edges gilt. Lacks clasps, and spine is worn and cracking, but the text is particularly clean. Bookplate of Robert Le Fevre, a writing master, dated 1697. The first two endpapers bear additional religious engravings. First printed in 1631, Pierre Moreau's finely engraved prayer-book was reissued, with the date modified on the title-page and a few minor alterations to the borders, in 1632, 1644, and 1649.
